    I am so excited for the 2017-2018 school year!  This is my sixth year as a member of the HHMS faculty, and I am so thankful to have the privilege of teaching such wonderful students at a school that promotes life-long learning and community involvment.  I am a graduate of Southeastern Louisiana University and am certified to teach English Language Arts and Social Studies.  I currently reside in Albany with my husband, John, and our two children, Brenley and Samuel.  When I'm not teaching English and grading papers, I enjoy spending time with my family, fishing, reading, and searching for the perfect cupcake.
    As an educator, I believe every child has the right to a challenging and engaging education.  Through the use of humor and positivity, my students and I create an environment in which they can thrive, learn, and grow as both learners and individuals.  By providing this conducive and safe learning environment, I encourage my students to take risks and develop an intrinsic motivation that will follow them long after leaving the halls of HHMS!
